Last year we had 10 days of 60 degrees, from what I heard. Ice was already off the lake. This year it might be off by fishing opener, first weekend in May.
This is why I love winter in Charleston.

Nats four starters go: 25.1 innings, 4 ER, 30 K, 4 BB :notworthy:

No pressure on AJ Happ to keep it going. :shock:
So yeah. AJ COLE (not sure why I said Happ :dunce: ) didn't quite have the same results.

3.2 IP, 10 ER, 4 K, 3 BB

Guess the Nats will try somebody else in the 5 spot.

That was awful last night. :ohno: Not even the 3-run spot his team gave him before he even stepped on the mound helped.
I watched his last spring training game (or maybe his second to last) and he looked awful then too. I was hoping that he was just working some things out, maybe trying new locations/speeds or whatever. But nope.

Fuck some of the unwritten rules in baseball.

No bunting in the ninth on a shift when you're down 7-0? Fuck off, that's exactly when I'm laying down a bunt because I'm still trying to win and apparently our team hasn't done so well up to that point swinging the bats.

No bunting when the opposite pitcher has a no-go going into the ninth? I don't care what the score is, if I have to bunt to get on base and ruin the no-no, hell yeah I'm doing that. I don't want my team to be on the wrong end of a no-hitter. And I'm also still trying to win, no matter how long the odds are.

These are professional athletes. They are paid to win games (or to entertain, depending on your viewpoint).
They should be trying to win down to the very last at-bat.
They are doing themselves and the fans a disservice by not trying to win until the absolute very end.

Nice work, MLB. Two of the four largest TV markets in the country, and you don't air the game on television in either market. Facebook only. WTF?

What? Your post makes no sense. This has nothing to do with the Yankees or “other areas of the country.”

This is a game that wasn’t shown on the Mets or the Phillies networks because of a stupid MLB agreement with FaceBook.

Was merely stating albeit not clearly, that the Yankees and other East Coast teams dominate National Tv coverage and Western teams are generally ignored except the Dodgers.

The NFL broadcast two games this year that outside of local markets were available only on Yahoo or Twitter and I didn't hear you complain....

The Facebook thing was a lot about nothing to be honest. The people that were complaining were people at work, and guess what, assuming they had Facebook, which most of them do, like myself, we were able to watch the game. If it was a regular broadcast they would have either A: had to follow the ESPN Game Cast or B: watch on the shitty NBC Sports app.

The only people with a legitimate gripe are retirees that don't use social media, but then again, unless you were listening to sports talk radio and these old-timers calling into complain you would've never heard them....

Meet one of next years big buck free agents.

Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, hit 145 Home Runs the last 5 years, that includes 34 last year and 42 the year before. Twins being the Twins, and didn't sign him before the season. Only has 4 home runs so far this year.

You just said the NFL games were shown in the local TV markets. Huge difference.

By the way, I was off of work yesterday and I don’t have wired broadband to my house, so FB wasn’t an option. Again, your point is blown up.

The solace is that the Phillies suck balls anyway, and apparently have a new manager who can’t coach his way out of a wet cardboard box.

Agree 100% that Kapler seems like a bust they should just fire now. You mean to tell me in 2018 you can't access the internet from your house via a laptop or a phone?

I have a 4G hotspot and data is too expensive for streaming. Remember, I don’t live in the liberal urban bubble.

I think you’re beginning to understand why the FB deal is stupid.

Dozier is one of the most under rated players in the game, hopefully they resign him.

Rockies signed Blackmon thru 2021 and two player options after that which could keep him there thru age 36. He is always well conditioned and he should be ok thru 36.

I think Arizona could be a real sleeper this year, I know it's still ridiculously early but they are one of my "favorites" (I use that term lightly being a Rockies fan) to challenge the Dodgers for the West. Should be a fun race.

We are off to a good start - sweeping the Doyers helps. Beating Clayton Kershaw is great. Having Jansen blow a three-run lead and beating them is even better.
